Side Opening Shipping Containers

For easier loading of large items, better access or for display purposes, consider side opening containers. Opening on their longest side, these containers are best suited to site storage of bulky items, exhibiting or use as a stall.

Things To Know About Our Side Opening Containers

Wide opening container units are generally available in 20ft, 40ft, or 40ft high cube. The wide access point is on the longer side panel, consisting of full concertina cargo doors. There are also standard cargo doors on one 8ft end of the unit.

Side opening doors are heavier than standard cargo doors so the roof and floor of containers are reinforced to create a robust container. As a result of the reinforced floor and roof, there can be a loss of internal height in the container.

Side Opening Shipping Containers For Conversion

Side Opening Shipping Containers offer many conversion opportunities and the units can be easily customised to suit your needs.

As the side opening container has doors on the longer sides, they are great solutions for those looking for unique exhibition stands, performance venues, ticket kiosks, pop-up bars or retail outlets. The side opening containers can also be divided into multiple sections, so you can have two or more office spaces or retail displays in the same container.

Lorna and the team supplied a great service from start to finish. I made several enquiries with a few so called suppliers on line "Ebay and the likes" all turned out to be fraudsters. I turned to S Jone as they are a company with a pedigree second to none,been about years in the transport and container sector. I actually attended there training school back in the day for various courses. If on line it looks too good to be true keep away,pay a little more money for a first class service from a company that delivers. I highly recommend S Jones for all your container requirements. Top service from Lorna and the team, Thankyou.👍
